The Automatic Therapy Transit

BalletHark – what fresh fuqery is this?

I’ll tell you what the f.f. is that’s up – Mercury into Kataka for, like, two and a half months. 

Yes, there is a Retrograde in there – cue: pass-agg crap, toxic nostalgia, drippy Love Zombie schizz AND – okay, some probably quite good herbal sort of manifestations. Like Mercury in the sign of the Moon for untold weeks on end could mean a sort of return to one’s core hippy values, meandering through a long country road to the hut of one’s childhood like in a Southern Gothic daytime movie sort of a style, nettle tea, emotional e-stalking when you’ve had too much Blue Devil, someone you never liked anyway turning up at your doorstep with a limp gerbera…Can you tell I am not a huge fan of this transit?

BUT i am going to summon my wits and produce an erudite, useful and elegant take on this to go with the Daily Mystic email for the weekend. Promise. I mean, there are profound aspects to this otherwise infuriating retrograde. Eg; it will sort of prequel Jupiter into Cancer/Kataka and that is going to be sensational.

So happy Therapy Transit from Friday until – ahem – mid-August.

Just been living with my mother for 8 months (I’m 33), baking gluten free bread, growing sprouts and vegetables, sun gazing, dealing with multiple Katakan mother’s madness.

I have Crab ascendant, too. 10 degrees. I haven’t been well for the past couple months. Three different bouts of head cold, one of which induced by reaction to TB test (at least I didn’t test positive for TB!), and one bout of food poisoning……ack! Because of being under the weather for so long, it has made me feel more fragile emotionally. I just feel worn down.

Cancer Asc here – I am pretty sure I saw a former long standing qi vampire walk out of my work building, I’m presuming after a job interview. It’s a big building, and what I do is completely unrelated to the rest of the organisation so it’s not like there’s potential of us working together (I’ve also put heaps of work and energy in forging a niche skilled professional career, whereas I think they have just floated in unskilled office jobs since graduating), but I have made a massive effort to cut their energy out of my life over the… Read more »

Hi Rache, I can’t answer your question in detail but I do know that Jupiter is exalted in Cancer, so Jupiter can function at its best/smoothest in that placement.

milleunanotte
milleunanotte

Complex picture! But that’s interesting…i think Venus and Sun like Mercury. I have Jupiter and Neptune trine Mercury natally and that’s not exactly crisp ‘n’ clear central…though the Uranus opposing with Mars square it makes it very sharp/cynical and erratic/electric/non-stop-buzz style as well. I could only dream of super crystal flow of thought!

Anonymous

it only happens sometimes i think 😉

basically the top half of my chart was like a fan shape with asc, venus, sun-merc, mars, dsc forming the points. moon and jupiter-lilith are up there too but they were doing wierd stuff like quincunx?? and semisextile? whatever.

I like to think that Merc translates, so maybe it’s kind of the meeting point between all those outer planets and mars for you. I can see how you’d pick up on the electric/erratic but fuzzy energy. but also super high vibe? outer space transmissions? 😀

milleunanotte
milleunanotte

He he let’s not forget those Moon-jup-Nep trines come from the 12th house!

But Uranus is in 11th for me so i could only wish that it were more outer space, unless i view other people as aliens. It astonishes me still what other people don’t know about their OWN motivations – i literally HEAR it in fuzzy transmission, like a radio, at times.

That top horizon fan shape sounds beautiful!

A dear Kataka friend dying of cancer just told me she was giving me a house deposit – any house, preferably find it now, before she dies.

oh my GOD! if you don’t know then put it in a term deposit or some other non-erodible account until you do know. mortgages are humungous financial commitments but like your average commitment phobe I am learning that it’s not all ball-and-chain (rent it out etc)… this is manna from not quite heaven, what an incredibly generous offer.. x

Sorry to hear about your friend A, that’s a really full on thing to have to deal with. Mystic can correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure her interpretation of Pluto in Cappy being your financial planner stuff is referring to dumb debt (i.e using credit cards for depreciating assets and cars etc), which is quite different to getting into debt on appreciating assets. If I were in your position, I would seriously consider your friends offer, even if it meant buying further out of town (like Ballarat) in order for it to be affordable. Rent money is… Read more »

P.s. I will relate my concerns to my friend, she wants us to get something we genuinely want to live in and love, so using it as a rental seems not the idea she has in mind.

Oh I always appreciate five cents of your time gorgeous. My understanding of the Oz property market is that it is inflated beyond all craziness.

Wow.. this scares me! But it might not have a lot to do with me! Cancer is in my 9th and 10th house. So mercury is swinging by those areas. Natally it is in Virgo, 11th house. So many planets and the transits throw me for a loop.

Is there an easy way of figuring out how the rotation of the planets might affect me? Each planet has a different affect and the squares, conjuncts and trines.. [sigh}.. I wish I could spend more time understanding this!

I’m so very happy I’m thousands of miles away from mother who has cancer asc-pluto conjunct.

Already up-ed the psychic boundaries protection and asked the most gob-smacking departed ancestors to deal with extreme indulgences of the one with natal leo sun with north node+moon in Taurus eclipses flipped…, transiting saturn hammering south node natal 10th….he’s losing it all over the place…

Oh brillso another planet to make hard aspects to my stupid Libra stellium, I have 4th and 5th house in Cancer too, I can already see how this’ll play out. Oh well, hopefully I’ll be too distracted battling Uranus to care.

As a Virgo with Kataka rising I’m not terrified of this transit… Although it will be interesting to see if others feel as conflicted as I do on a daily basis.

Oh no I’ve got Kataka in Mercury in my 5th house. Over it already.

Native Mercury in Kataka also (2nd house), I am thinking what with Saturn on Scorp closing in on my Moon life will be emo. Ai.

Oh wow! You have merc in 2nd like the Saggo dude. He’s such a gifted writer. Keep telling him he could make money with those skills. You did say once you’re working on something 🙂

:p obvs a talented guy.
Yes my Mercury is in grand water trine with my Moon & Jupiter. MM said that I will make $ this way too x 4. If one person reads something I write & is moved then that is plenty.

Always wanted to write, but I didn’t want to write about my ignorance, LZ issues or immaturity.
Now I have a few things I am working on quietly, largely my alt healing work inspires.

I think I make statements rather than conversation starters here, at times I am sure it’s a bit out of place.. I love your comments always. I get strong energy readings of the regulars and I like your wateriness.

i wonder,if it’s Mystic’s native Merc in Aries, which i share, plus her Uranian future drive. When i found out i was progressed Moon in Kataka i completely freaked. I’m natal Moon in Sag and even though it IS in the 12th which i believe can be an overemo placement, especially conjunct Neptune, it is the whiny, nostalgic, entitled, manipulative lo-Cancer thing that i experienced in a partner that gives me the horrors. There are beautiful gracious and talented Katakans in my life, but i doubt my own native ability to vibe high Kataka without plenty of falling over my… Read more »

I’d be freaked too if I found out my progressed anything was Cancer. Natal moon Sagg in 11th.

My progressed Sun is in Cap conj my Asc. Very happy about that 🙂

My Prog Sun is in Taurus, though i haven’t been moved to ask for more Toro astro-comment. Possibly not doing Prog Sun…or maybe “not being moved” to do anything is actually very Toro.

I’m now Prog Cap Asc, Scorpbots 🙂

Hahaha…. no way! 😀
I’m prog Pisces Asc!!! I’ve never even been into the Prog thing (except for Prog Rock of course 🙂 but recently a friend said I was sounding like a Pisces because I’ve been so distracted. I thought maybe something was going on with my natal Neptune conjunct Sun or Neptune trining Sun, so I decided to investigate and was stoked to see Pisces Asc. It’s perfect for my new endeavour 😛

I’m worried about money and should have been well pleased with a job offer from prestigious place who made it clear how much they want me but NO i was in a state of shock over the payscale, and strategising longterm vengeance over the place that didn’t even give me a look in…i feel that i’m planning my next career steps sideways to make the other place want me. Is that Cap Asc w Kataka Moon enough?? Sheesh. Oh and yeah, welcome to Pisces. It won’t get you down too much because you’ll actually forget you’re here most of the… Read more »

Ahh… *nods* you got the status anxiety thing going on. YES! Sideways step – that is so Cap Asc / Kataka Moon!!! LOL. Let’s not forget Kataka’s business savvy – Richard Branson. Maybe you should read his bio for inspiration? With Prog Cap I’m sure you’ll get what you want. Eventually. Saturn will make you work hard for it. Thanks for the Neptune welcome. “spirituartistic that makes you a medium for divine beauty. You’ve nailed it 🙂 My Progressed moon is in Libra (conjunct my Natal venus). No wonder I recently bought a ridiculously expensive perfume because I thought it… Read more »

Umm, I get a bit lost with researching progressions. I understand transits but I don’t understand progressions. Can anyone explain what it all means when you read your astrodientist chart? It seems to me the progression moves with the planet ………………… do you interpret the aspects? or against your planets at the time of birth? What does progression mean?

milleunanotte
milleunanotte

Sorry, mate i cannot explain any of that as i just haven’t got a clue what progressions are. I’m Piscean so i intuit and synthesise, and Uranus opposes my Merc so i get flashes of insight not step by step. What i can say if it’s of any use is that the circumstances that HAPPENED TO me, like chronic viral crap and nasty people crap, seemed to be certain transits, even the need to get major dental. But my current circumstances that are a result of certain choices i have made, and the new ways i am responding to those… Read more »

LOL. 😀 I can’t explain it either!!! Just because I said further up that I was obsessed (not really, just curious) doesn’t mean I can explain it to anyone.

I googled ‘progression’ and read a very complex explanation and was scratching my head 😕 then I thought it doesn’t matter. It makes some sense on some level.

Scorp with Merc in Scorp. I intuit too.

I don’t think I could explain them in a blog post, they are best explained with an ephemeris at hand so you can see how they work. There are different types of progressions used (e.g. solar arc) but most common is secondary progressions aka ‘year for a day’… so from the day you are born, each day of planetary movements covers a year of your life (this makes much more sense if you can see and use an ephemeris). So for example if someone was born today, you’d use todays planetary positions for the first year of life (as per… Read more »

P.S. That is in a very small and basic nutshell, there is far more to them – but considering people write entire books on the topic, to go into full detail on a blog is not really practical.

I do actually have an ephemeris. I love flicking through it when I’m too lazy to jump on computer but I don’t think it’s going to help me understand progressions. Lol. Technicalities aside, I’d like to know HOW the whole ‘year for a day’ progressions theory affects us. Why isn’t the standard astro enough? It’s too complicated. I don’t think I’m ever really going to get into it in great depth. I’m still trying to get a handle on interpreting transits. It is a life long journey though. Maybe it will fall into place at some stage. I only just… Read more »

Well if you’re an astrologer and have studied it for years, it is the standard astro! 😛

I can’t really find the right words to explain it well right now, but you can think of progressions kind of like an internal clock – that shows your inner self gradually unfolding/evolving in a pre-destined way, while transits are more about the external events (or reactions to external events) that life throws at us along the way…

Something along those lines anyway!

scorpbot

ahhh…. *nods* “internal clock – that shows your inner self gradually unfolding/evolving in a pre-destined way…”
I get it now. Cool! 🙂

I’ve had a life long interest in astro but I wouldn’t call myself an an astrologer.

Saturnalien

I learnt it very, very young (as in from about 6 years old and could cast a chart by hand by age 11) and I worked professionally for a while.

I had a horrible experience moderating a forum for another pro astrologer for a while a few years back so I tend to keep my sharing of knowledge online to bare minimum. I just hang out here because it’s fun and the people are awesome, but every now and then a bit slips out that gives me away…

If the gerbera daisy is utter crap, why not perk it up a little and quietly give it to your local shopkeep? You’ve accepted the gift, and you’ve successfully re-gifted. And just quietly fade back into the ether where the other person is concerned.

Win-win. 🙂
